Sparkle City Mini Putt | Student Media Project

HUB BUB is a group located in Spartanburg, known for creating fun and exciting things for the people of Spartanburg to do. Through their Artists-in-Residence (AiRs) program, they were able bring a mini-putt course to downtown Spartanburg called Sparkle City Mini Putt. 

Robin Schwartzman, a 2015 AiR, is the creator behind the mini-putt course. She created this nine-hole course as the final product in her stay with the AiRs program.  Each hole incorporates a different aspect of Spartanburg into it.  One example of this is the cap and gown hole; this hole shows off the different colleges of Spartanburg County.  Other holes represent a local restaurant, The Beacon, and a well-known landmark, Daniel Morgan Square.

This mini-putt course is free to the public. You can bring your own putter and ball or rent them from one of five local businesses, which are all in walking distance of the course. Sparkle City Mini Putt is located between Main and Broad Streets.
